Harbour Town Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Harbour Town LighthouseA common site when one thinks about Hilton Head. This is the little lighthouse in Harbour Town, a symbol of the Island. Seen often when watching golf from the area. The lighthouse is 90 foot tall, is open as a museum to the public for $5.00. A small gift shop at the base and on top provide shopping opportunities. As you climb the stairs you're viewing the museum items. I'm told this is a good place to watch the sunset. It was about to close the first day we were here, and the 2nd day I tried to tour it; it was closed for maintenance and painting.
Harbour Town Golf LinksHarbour Town Golf Links right on the water's edge is a view you might be familiar with, as it's often shown during competitions on TV. Harbour Town is the toe area of the Island.
shopping in Harbour TownAs you walk the boardwalk you can view the gorgeous ships, soak in the sun (this was one such day), shop in the quaint little village area; or eat at any of the many restaurants. Though we found many restaurants closed during our stay; as it wasn't "in season".
StatueThis, I'm sure is a favorite past-time during the season. The folks you see behind the red rockers are lining up for ice cream. Further down we saw some folks rocking taking in the sun, and a few looked to be taking a nap, while others...like the statue reading a book enjoying the view.

  1. This looks like a fun place to visit.
    We love lighthouses, and everything you mentioned sounds like fun.
    It would be awsome to watch the sunset from there.
    But how can the sun go down in the East? It comes up in the East and sets in my ocean in the west.
    This time it is not the pug that is confused - its the mom,

  2. Very nice and entertaining post, as always.

    Reading your post makes me feel that I'm on an armchair travelogue, enjoying the places that you described, admiring the wholesome pics, and learning a thing or two about the area.

    By the way since I left Entrecard I have more time to read, enjoy, and comment, unlike before when I was sometimes on a mindless drop and run for the yellow widget.

  6. I always enjoy watching the PGA tour at Harbour Town and the lighthouse is always a favorite on the 18th hole, I think. I'm sure it would cost at least one arm & leg to play it so it won't happen in my lifetime!

    Friends 4 Life!

  17. The photos that you have displayed are so scenic. I am sure that a lot of care and planning has gone into the Harbour Town at Hilton Head Island to reach that wonderful stage.

    Although I live in the Philippines which comprise thousands of islands, none is as scenic as those you have shown. Much of what we have in the Philippines is idyllic coastal villages and unadulterated terrain.

    You are so blessed to be able to get to be there and to see such lovely places.
